Notes:

-
- there was a tape problem at 0:58 in Dupree's. I put in a sub-second patch
- Space has a patch 2:49 - 2:59, which has been mix-pasted by aproximatey 2.5 seconds
at either end
- last 1:09 of NFA and crowd patched
- source 1 patches for Dupree's and Space. Source 2 patches for NFA and crowd. They have
been eq'd so that they have a closer match to the sound of this source
- crossfades added where tape had been paused between some tracks and on tape flips,
except during Space (see above)
- mastered using Wavelab v5 as host for iZotope Ozone v3.08, TC Works Native Dex v3.1 and
BBE Sonic Maximiser v2
- downsampled to 16/44.1 with Wavelab 5 and dithered with iZotope Ozone (type:Mbit+,
noise shaping:high, dither amount:normal)

Comments:

- the vocals are lower in the mix during much of the first 2 tracks
- what I'd really like to know is "Who was Harry?"

Subject: Who is Harry?
Harry Popick was a sound engineer. I think he worked with the monitors.
